Last week…s new release slate was spearheaded by zombies and soccerBut this week the attention of the vampires and basketball.

Leading the pack this week is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The first was teased March 2008 and formally announced during the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the game drops this week for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Madrid, Spain-based Mercury Steam led development, with Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and his Kojima Productions studio serving as support.

This isn't your mother's Castlevania.

As for the game, Lords of Shadow is set in the year 1047 and follows Gabriel Belmont, who is a member of the Brotherhood of Light. Gabriel's quest involves roaming the land in pursuit of pieces of an artifact that can bring the dead back to life, in the process battling nefarious underworld creatures and other mythical monsters and beasts.

Also dropping this week is Visual Concept…s NBA 2K11 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, and Wii. Legendary hall of famer Michael Jordan graces the title…s cover and is featured in the game as a playable character. Further, the game embraces Jordan more fully by including a handful of Jordan Challenges, including …The Flu Game.… In this 1997 NBA Final game, Jordan was violently ill and still managed to tally 39 points in a win. Players will have to match that feat to unlock additional goods.

Though NBA Elite 11 has been indefinitely postponed, EA Sports will still be slamming the hardwood with NBA Jam. The arcade basketball title is due out exclusively on the Wii this week, and the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are due out …by the holidays.… The game is a revival of the well-regarded 1993 arcade game of the same name and has been updated with new visuals and gameplay changes. The title sports two distinct modes: classic and remix tour, where gamers can play either in a traditional manner or with an array of new power-ups and battles, respectively.

On the portable game front, Square Enix this week is releasing Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. The publisher is calling the title a "back to basics"contribution to the storied series, and it will give players more than the single player adventure.

Four-player co-op has been promised for the title, which will be a turn-based role-playing game. It will feature a class system akin to Final Fantasy X-2, with players being able to switch their character's class by changing the hat the character is wearing, Square Enix said.

Also being released this week is the Wii exclusive Wii Party. Having debuted in Japan in early July, Wii Party marks Nintendo…s first stab at the party genre since 2007…s Mario Party 8. The title is composed of 13 distinct game modes and packs in over 70 minigames. Nintendo recently purchased a majority stake in the game…s developer, ND Cube, a team arguably most famous for the Gameboy Advance title F-Zero: Maximum Velocity.

Shifting to the music-game space, Konami is bringing Def Jam: Rapstar to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii this week. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game will come bundled with the game and a wired mic for $69.99, while the Wii package costs $59.99.
